Nivea Perfect and Radiant Micellar Water

I’ve always been a fan of Micellar water for make up removal. It’s gentle on the skin and has great beauty benefits. So when I found out that Nivea had released their own Micellar range, I had to join the party.

Shout out to Rubybox for sending me this awesome product.

Firstly. Can we talk about the size of the bottle?! It’s huge. This is definitely gonna last me a few months. I hate having to restock products that finish too soon, especially something I use as often as make up remover.

What makes this different from other Micellar products?

Well for starters, it’s a three in one product that can be used for cleansing, removing make up and toning your face. So essentially- this is the only product you need. I have the entire Perfect and Radiant range now (thanks to Rubybox you guys rock) and I find that this product fits in perfectly with my skincare routine.

Also it’s great for days when I’m feeling lazy about cleansing my face, I just dab some product in a cotton wool swob and give my face a refreshing cleanse (also, saving water! #beatdayzero)

It removes make up effortlessly. My waterproof make up wipes off without having to scrub the skin off my face.

I often struggled, with previous Micellar products, to remove my mascara. But this product removes mascara quick and painlessly.

The formula is enriched with Vitamin E which contributes to easy make up removal, Radiant skin and it also leaves the skin feeling incredibly nourished and smooth.

A 400ml bottle will cost you R99.99 at any Clicks and Dischem store nationwide.

I’m definitely switching to this product in future for my make up removal needs.

Have you tried it? What did you think?

Until next time!

Sorbet Make Up Launch!

It’s the 1st of March which means your favorite salon is launching their own Make Up line!

Yes lovelies, Sorbet has launched its own make up brand and I was there last night to preview it! So here’s what you need to know!

There are 28 foundation colours! So you’re bound to find your colour! Last night at the preview there were Make Up artists helping us all find our perfect match. The foundations come in three different packages, which includes a mousse foundation! Sorbet has really gone all out to ensure they are catering for everybody!

But you’re going to die when you see the rest of the range! Three new eyeshadow palettes, three new mascaras, an eyebrow kit, a beautiful range of lipsticks (including a matte range), cheek stamps, eyeliner- the list goes on and on.

Here are my favorite products from last night!

Glow and Tell

⁃ Fam! You will never need another highlighter again in your life. This gave my skin some major glow. I fell in love. I’ll definitely be rocking this highlighter all week.

Squeaky Clean!

⁃ This is a liquid brush and sponge cleanser. Gone are the days of having to mix your own brush cleaning solution. Just pop a little bit of this into a container and dip your brush- voila! Cleaning brushes has never been so easy.

Way-Out Lashes

⁃ This mascara is amazing. It has added fibers which give you longer lashes that are defined and ready to conquer the world.

So there you have it! Head to your nearest Clicks Store now and get your hands on the new Sorbet Make Up Range! Also, did I mention how adorable they are?

Hit us up in the comments and tell us what product you are most excited about!

Until next time!

#CherubsCares Facial Wipes (Review)

Two weeks ago I was sent the new Cherubs Facial Wipes from the Beauty Bulletin. They sent me a great little hamper that contained facial wipes for normal skin (Blue) and for sensitive/dry skin (Pink) as well as some cotton wool pads and buds.

My first impression of this product is that it removes my make up effortlessly, leaving my skin feeling smooth and hydrated.

Eco- friendly and affordable, this product has definitely snuck it’s way into my heart.
A few months ago I stopped using facial wipes, I found them too expensive and always felt like I was wasting them, as I never used the entire wipe.
This is the first time I’ve used a wipe again since converting to an alternative form of make up removal and I must say that I am impressed.

I try to pay attention to the impact my life has on the environment, so knowing that this product is bio-digradeable, really makes me feel like I’m being kind to the earth – considering how many facial wipes a girl uses in a day.

I love that it’s free of parabens and alcohol, and the fact that it’s pH balanced is always a plus. My skin feels smooth due to the chamomile extracts in the wipes which contribute to my skin feeling fresh, soft and able to breathe after removing my make up.

I will definitely be repurchasing this product and have shared it with friends!

6 Products I Can’t Live Without

There are a few beauty products I cannot imagine my life without. And when you find a product that works for you, the nice thing to do is share it with others. So here we go 20 Somethings, these are the 6 Products I can’t live without.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water
This is the make up remover product you are missing in your life. It removes waterproof make up effortlessly, just with the wipe of a cotton wool swob. And it lasts forever! I’ve had my bottle for over 6 months now and it’s still got a quarter left before it finishes. It also works as a great toner for your skin, hello! Two-in-one? Yes please!

Environ Balancing Masque
We all know how much I love Environ. Their products are just quality and worth every cent (They’re pretty pricey!) But if I was having a bad month and couldn’t afford to buy the products, the Balancing Masque would be the one I fork out the cash for. You can read my review on it here. But basically it works as a micro-exfoliator and a hydrating masque (and you know I love two in one products) The one I’m using, is still from the package Environ sent me in March, so this product lasts forever. And it makes my skin feel AND look AMAZING.

Avène Skin Tone Perfecter
Now this product is a lifesaver, which is why I mention it so often in my posts! Don’t feel like wearing make up today? Chilled vibes. Just rub on some tinted moisturiser and you’re good to go! It Hydrates your skin while leaving your face looking flawless. (Read my review here)

Urban Decay Quick Fix Spray
I love this product because it fits in my handbag, I can take it wherever I need to go and give my face a spray when I feel I need it. Not that you’d ever need to reapply this product. One spray sets my make up for hours, leaving it looking just as great as it did a the beginning of the night.

Benefit Girl Meets Pearl
Now a good highlighter can change your life. It’s confidence in a bottle. Now, I have a lot of highlighting products, but this one is by far my favourite. You can achieve a dazzling glow with this product but it can also give you a subtle glow too. It’s a bit pricey, but I only wear it on special occasions (by special occasions I mean every time I go out! – lol kidding. But seriously)

Rimmel Scandaleyes Reloaded Mascara
This mascara changed my life. No other mascara has come close to this one. It gives you length for days! It also provides a thickness in your lashes but doesn’t clump them all up together. Giving you long, individual lashes that are perfect for any occasion.
